before them, and that's something i think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? >> i think that when he says that implicitly is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. that wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the people, and
that work? >> well, youtube's operating under united states law, and there are very few situations where they areequired to take down content. we don't have hate speech laws. the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it insights imminent lawlessness, and i think google was correct that the video in question did not meet that standard, so they made a decision globally to leave that content up. that's the right decision. it's very, very difficult. we have -- youtube gets 72 hours of video uploaded a minute. we have thousands of tweets coming in a second. we can't expect these companies to be screening on the front end, and our law doesn't require them to do so. in fact, it protects them from liability. >> i know it doesn't require them and you sate's the right thing to leave it up but it did insight violence and the deaths of four americans. >> well, i don't know that we know it incited violence. we know that those videos were used at least pretexturally. it's a decision that every company has to make for themselves. that's how we've made our laws in the uni
, bond purchases every month meant to give banks the ability to lend more to people in the united states. italy and spain, two big countries considered too big to fail in the ongoing eurozone crisis could get bailout funds going forward to bring down their borrowing costs. both are instances of central banks initiating action when the political will to act is lacking, whether in washington or in europe's capital. joining me now to debate the tactics is rich quest. richard, welcome. today's q and a question is are central banks saving the world or are they making things worse? i'll go first, richard. give me 60 seconds on the clock starting now. richard, central banks are doing the right thing by taking action to shore up our troubled economies, but it is only half the equation. there is a world financial crisis like the one we witnessed four years ago when lehman brothers collapse two things need to be done. number one, central banks need to step in with emergency fiscal moves. two, make smart political decisions and that is what's lacking in the united states and in europe's capitals. a
of the states want to work with the united states. they have a small group inside the state that wants to use the united states to rally and raise their own cause and also to undercut the government. so the worst thing we could do is cut support to these governments. they need our help, they want our help. they want to modernize, they want to work with the united states. but we have to do is insist they fulfill their responsibilities to protect our sovereign territory in their countries. >> i want to talk to you about a story that we have been reporting. you've heard about the people who are dressed up in nato uniforms, going in and killing people, harming people. we'll do a story about a young man killed in afghanistan, working -- he said he didn't feel safe trusting the troops he was training -- training the people he was training to be police officer. can you talk about that? that say real problem, isn't it? >> it is a real problem. and i know our commanders in afghanistan are taking additional measures, like making sure our troops are armed, making sure there are sufficient numbers of tro
people especially in the united states are saying no, thest a matter of free expression. the president of one of those groups was on cnn this morning. >> the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it incites imminent lawlessness and i think google is correct that the video in question did not meet that standard. >> google, which owns youtube, constantly having to make subjective decisions about what videos are okay. >> interesting. but this ist over because the white house has been asked to weigh in on this as well. >> the extent was asking youtube to take another look at it and then they said no, we're not going to do it. what you do have all the time, this is what's so fascinating about the way technology is changing the world. there are so many difficult decisions youtube has to face. for example, they say they don't all allow gory vooid, violent video, then you get these videos out of syria that show gore and violence. what we found is a youtube official who gave a talk a few years ago who said there's something they take a look at. to see whether a v
. this is spread throughout the united states from places like los angeles to providence, rhode island. it's a culture of corruption it seems that even the executive leadership, they knew about this sh didn't report it and kept the people on the boy scouts from tell the parents about it. >> so, that's revealed in the documentation? how was that discovered or alleged that officials knew about it then failed to report it? >> some of these documents the "l.a. times" got their hands on, we asked the boy scouts of america how they got them. they didn't want to talk about that. these are people blacklisted from volunteering with the boy scouts and in the correspondence back and forth between the leadership and people that were allegedly abusing these children, it showed they knew about these cases, covered them up and went so far as to hide the cases from the parents and law enforcement. they didn't report these cases. 80% were not reported to law enforcement. >> so, a cover up also leads one to think that potentially, those who are accused of participating in this kind of behavior, they have al
